Re: Smith & Wesson model 19

I own and shoot M19 in 6 inch and 4 inch configurations. Many thousands of rounds of Super Vel 110 and 125 and my own 125 hand loads have gone through the 6 incher and it still hits where I point it. It has shot its share of heavier bullets on up to and including BB 180 grain. It is my handgun versi...

Re: Back open?

Good for them!

Our feed and hardware store never closed and has had above average business.
Same for service stations, auto garages, grocery stores , and all outdoor work and construction businesses.

Makes me wonder why other businesses closed.

Re: .38 in .357 lever leading question

WRT .38 ammo in .357 rifle:

My M1892 .357 with 20 inch Douglas barrel will not stabilize any .38 ammo other than loads with velocity equal to .357 ammo.

You will need to see what weight and velocity ammo your .357 rifle likes and does not like.

Have fun!
